What we say:

At A Glance:

Phil Collen's collaboration with Jackson first started over 30 years ago and his signature PC1 has gone on to become one of Jackson's most recognisable guitars. As the lead guitarist for Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees Def Leppard, Phil required an ergonomic guitar that benefitted precision playing and was able to stay true to the tight tones that were a key part of Def Lep's cutting edge albums. The result was a timeless superstrat that's just as relevant today as it was 30 years ago.

This Limited Edition model boasts a caramelized mahogany body with a breathtaking claro walnut top and a two-piece quartersawn caramelized flame maple neck, Floyd Rose tremolo, DiMarzio pickups and a Sustainer Driver.

You have to admit, this is by far one of the most beautiful PC1's Jackson have released!

Features We Love:

Caramelized Mahogany meets Claro Walnut

The guitar features a caramelized mahogany body with a claro walnut top. Mahogany is loved for its weighty feel, rich low end and smooth high-end character, the caramelization process simulates the natural ageing of the wood, meaning that the great sounding mahogany is at its absolute best from the get-go. Claro Walnut is native to California and has a breathtaking grain which makes it ideal as a topwood, but its tonal character also compliments the mahogany to bring out an airy clarity.

Pickups Selection

The guitar has the appearance of an S/S/S configuration, but there's a lot more going on under the hood than it may seem. In the bridge position, we have the Phil Collen signature Sugar Chakra, this is a high powered humbucking pickup that rolls off the high end to create a creamy tone that sounds edgy when you dig in. In the middle position, we have another humbucker, the Fast Track 1 has a more pronounced high end and subdued mids, this makes it the ideal choice for the middle position and it blends perfectly with the bridge pickup. Finally, in the neck position is another Collen signature pickup, the PC1 Sustainer Driver obviously works as a sustainer (more on that below) but it's also a fully functioning and great sounding pickup, with a chiming bright tone that sounds great on its own or when combined with the middle pickup.

PC1 Sustainer Driver

The PC1 Sustainer Driver is a staple of Phil Collen guitars and allows for unending sustain. The sustainer circuit has its own dedicated controls for activating the sustainer and selecting whether you'd like a cleaner sounding sustain or sustain with more harmonic excitement. The sustainer can be used with any pickup combination and offers infinite sustain without changing your tone once activated. So you can drop it in mid-note in a solo, go out, have a bite and you'll still be hearing that one.

Pros:

  • The guitar has been made to the highest possible standard with only the best materials and components.
  • The locking Floyd Rose tremolo system promotes fluid playing and offers robust tuning stability
  • Great selection of tones from the high gain yet clear sounding pickups
  • Endless sustain on tap from the PC1 Sustainer Driver
